I just discovered the colorful world of Ruth Issett via the Textile Study Group (such a fun place to check out the members’ artwork). From there I learned that she had written a book: A Passion for Colour: Exploring Colour Through Paper, Print, Fabric, Thread and Stitch. Wow, that’s going in the Amazon cart STAT.
Issett is an artist and instructor living in the UK. You can read an interview with her (from 2010 – couldn’t find anything more recent – let me know if you can!) on the Approachable Art blog.
Meanwhile, take a gander at these lovelies.
All pictures, plus more, posted on The Textile Study Group site, where you can also read her artist’s statement. Enjoy!
